    Indeed! My hummers were going CRAZY yesterday! Funny you should post. The males seemed to be fighting and chasing each other around – territory wars – and then the female would come and they would fly HIGH HIGH HIGH in the sky and swoop down. I believe mating – though it is not the usual time for that – is it? I was fascinated watching them for 10-15 minutes. Didn’t even think to grab the camera as I was so enthralled 🙂

      Mine have been absolutely crazy this whole week! And even after mating season, which I think is mostly May to July, they are just plain territorial – which makes them oh so fun to watch!

        Sometimes I feel like we live next door to each other even though we are states apart as our birds are so similar 🙂

  4. What a handsome bird he is! Great photo!
